"Ozu no Kakashi Tsukai" ("The Scarecrow of Oz") Chapter 1


Here it is!  “Ozu no Kakashi Tsukai” or “The Scarecrow of Oz”
Link to “Ozu no Kakashi Tsukai”

This is one of those stories that kinda sneaks up on you when you start to think of its deeper meanings.  I think the key themes in this story are what is merit and what does it mean to have merit.  Also, this story is rife with references to the “Wizard of Oz” and the themes within that story.  See how many of them you can catch :).

I had a very interesting e-mail conversation with one of my proofreaders, Corgi, about this story.  I will post this exchange in a day or two after enough people have had the chance to read the story.  I don’t want to spoil the story or color your opinions of the story before you read it.  Anyhow, check back in a couple of days and give your own opinions if you want.

  1. tyvm for the release. downloading it now. sounds interesting from the description, not too keen on the cute artwork but hopefully story will make up for it.

  2. There's a minor error where you used commas instead of dots on page 10, but it doesn't hurt the reading experience.

    Nevertheless, that was super cute xD I would've liked a couple more chapters to see what would've happened afterward.

  3. Man, I keep thinking about this and how awesome it was xD

    Do you think you could let me use this in an MMV to promote it a bit o= I usually remove the text when making the MMV.

    I'll give credit to you as well for the scanlations, if you do happen to give me permission.

  4. @just_out_of_time — sure, but please be creative about it. I think it will be too conspicuous if it's too literal. YouTube seems to be a source of irritation for publishers.
